Art's Still High at Woodstock

Singer Art Garfunkel, who pleaded guilty last year to pot possession in upstate New York, was charged again Sunday after a marijuana cigarette was allegedly found in the ashtray of his car, state police said.

The 63-year-old Garfunkel, who lives in Manhattan, was charged after being pulled over for failing to stop his vehicle at a stop sign, The Daily Freeman of Kingston reported Tuesday.

Upon approaching Garfunkel's car, a trooper noticed a strong odor of marijuana and a subsequent search turned up a joint in the ashtray, the newspaper reported. He was issued a ticket and is due back in Woodstock Town Court on Sept. 22.

In January 2004, Garfunkel was charged with marijuana possession after state police stopped his limousine for speeding in the Ulster County town of Hurley, which is near Woodstock some 55 miles southwest of Albany. During that stop, police found a small amount of pot in Garfunkel's jacket.

--He just can't stop reliving his days from Woodstock.

1 What a waste of tax payer money. Why don't they busy themselves arresting criminals

2 I mostly agree with Sheryl, though I'm not excited about people high behind the wheel. But last night, I watched pieces of Cops: Mardi Gras, and they had a bunch of undercover cops walking around Bourbon Street following the scent of marijuana and arresting people who had nothing more than a joint or a one-hitter on them. Now THAT is a waste of money and manpower. Ridiculous.
